Joanie is survived by her son, Kevin (Tanya) Honea; granddaughters, Stacie W. Honea and Anna G. Honea all of whom were the lights of her life; sisters-in-law, Margaret Halcomb, Nancy Hopson and Beverly Gullatt; a host of cousins, nieces and nephews; special friend, Carol Dobbs; and many Facebook friends who allowed her the social life she enjoyed so much while being home-bound.
She was an excellent organist who loved to play at home for her family and at church for the glory of our Lord. She enjoyed bowling and was very good at this sport in earlier years. She loved her Lord, family, friends and all animals. Joanie could always find hope and humor in all situations and was a compassionate and caring person.
God speed… until we meet again.
My sincere sympathies for your recent passing of Billie.Jesus felt the pain and sorrow that death brings when his friend Lazarus died.
Kevin, Tanya, Stacie, & Anna
